    Tux is a fat penguin. Who doesn't love a fat penguin"?

    This is heading towards the spam bin. No more one liners denoting your fav mascot please .

    I don't know, this is kinda hard to decide.

    To begin with, I can't actually recall having seen that devil.........but a devil, big and treacherous, that doesn't ring my bell, so we can exlude him.

    Now that penguin looks kind and cute......but it's too obvious in a way, you notice they have made it just to look kind and cute.

    The Window's window is kinda kind in it's own way.......it's not like it's trying to be obviously kind, but yet it's kindness is there. It symbolises the ambition of Bill Gates, and his friendly attempts to really raise a successful company. It's a friendly window, basically.

    So after all, I guess I'll have to say the window. The devil is too evil, the penguin is too obviously friendly............While the window is untouched, yet warm.

    The penguin could beatup the window lol. I've never heard someone use the words "kind" and "warm" in relation to anything microsoft related, and i must say im a little scared right now.

    HUH???? Are you sure you posted the right message? Bill Gates is an insane money obssessed guy trying to take over the computer world! (refering to paladium here) The only warm thing about windwos is the bugs which makes you so mad that your head gets warm

    And I voted on Tux

    They say that if you play a Windows Install CD backwords, you hear satanic messages. That's nothing; play it forward and it installs Windows.

    The BSD girl? Do you have a link to that picture, or are you making a joke about the BSD devil that I don't get? (Hey, it's always a possibility... sometimes I'm pretty clueless!)

    I did a quick search and found this site (daemonbabe.jpg was the first that i saw). But the site doesnt have all the pics, I only have like 2 others.

    But this isnt too bad either.

    Sorry, mart_man, but I don't think I'd make a very good Linux babe. About all I know how to do in Linux is change directories, create very simple shell scripts, and compile C++ programs
